Arch splits up Libreoffice

Before to get Libreoffice installed on Arch all you needed to do was `sudo pacman -S libreoffice`, but now you need to install the pieces individually.  This is handy if, for example, you don’t need their database or Powerpoint like tools. It was a bit of an inconvenience for me because after the change I didn’t realize base, calc, and writer weren’t part of the common install and I had only installed common and English language pack portions of the program.  When I tried to open the spreadsheet that in place of a checkbook register it only recognized it as a Libreoffice chart.  That file doesn’t have any charts in it.  Oops.
